Delhi Capitals has performed well in the last couple of seasons and they will aim to continue their good performance under the leadership of their new skipper Rishabh Pant. Delhi Capitals also had a decent outing in the mega auction as they grabbed some big names into their squad. The franchise has retained Prithvi Shaw, Rishabh Pant, Axar Patel, and Anrich Nortje ahead of the 15th edition of IPL. The biggest gain for Delhi Capitals in the auction was the purchase of David Warner. The other well-known purchases were Mitchell Marsh, Rovman Powell, Kuldeep Yadav, Shardul Thakur, and Mushfizur Rehman. 

The addition of two good all-rounders like Mitchell Marsh and Shardul Thakur is a great decision by the franchise as these two will prove very crucial for them in the tournament. The hard-hitting ability of Rovman Powell will also strengthen their firepower in the middle-order.  

Delhi Capitals Squad

Predicted 11

Now let’s take a look at the strongest and predicted lineup of Delhi Capitals for IPL 2022 

Openers; Warner and Shaw

Delhi Capitals has a strong opening pair in the form of Prithvi Shaw and David Warner for the 15th edition of IPL. Both of them are destructive opening batters and play aggressively without taking a lot of time to settle down. Prithvi Shaw is a good opener but he is not in the best of forms recently so, the addition of an experienced player like David Warner will give him a lot of confidence to regain his form in the IPL 2022. David Warner was a key player for Sunrisers Hyderabad in the previous seasons and the fans will hope that he will also perform well for Delhi Capitals at the top. 

Middle-order; Marsh, Pant, Mandeep, and Powell

Delhi Capitals have one of the strongest middle-order this season with Mitchell Marsh likely to bat at 3 followed by Pant, Mandeep, and Powell. Marsh is a good one-down batter, having the ability to play both aggressive and anchoring innings. Marsh has proved a very handy number 3 batter for Australian national team. 

The skipper Rishabh Pant is the best option for number 4 to capitalize the start provided by the top 3. The young Mandeep Singh will bat at 5 while the destructive Rovman Powell will show his power in the death overs at number 6. Powell is a very aggressive batter who can finish the games for Delhi Capitals.

All-rounders; Axar Patel and Shardul Thakur 

Delhi Capitals have two brilliant all-rounders in the form of Axar Patel and Shardul Thakur in their lineup. Axar Patel is a very good spin option and his batting skills are also outstanding. Shardul Thakur was a key player for Chennai Super Kings last year and now he will provide his services to Delhi Capitals. He is an excellent wicket-taking option in the middle-overs and he can hit the ball out of the park in the final overs. 

Bowlers; Kuldeep Yadav, Nortje, Sakariya

Kuldeep Yadav will be a part of the playing 11 as the main spinner to pick up wickets and stop the flow of runs in the middle for Delhi Capitals. In the pace department, Anrich Norje will be the front-line fast bowler for Delhi Capitals. Nortje has performed brilliantly in the last couple of years for Delhi. He will be supported by the young and promising Chetan Sakariya who has a lot to prove in this season.
